Songs About Famous People
Playing songs and talking about it for a living. You’d think I would know a lot about music. Funny, sometimes several years can go by before I actually listen to the songs we play on WTRV. Usually, Andy and I are too busy with other stuff to take the time to listen to the songs. Good example, “I’ll Be Around” by the Spinners, I’ve heard the song a billion times but only recently listened to what it was about. Talk about unconditional love. Nice song. That Elton John song “Blessed” about an unborn baby. Another one that played for years before I got it. Everyone’s favorite has to be “American Pie” with all those references to bands and singers. Too bad Don McLean will never tell us what he was singing about. For other songs, here is the backstory.
